    Displaying Protocol Status

    Protocol Status

    The Protocol Status menu retrieves protocol status for the selected node and displays information by using the available network routing protocols.

    To prepare the protocol status data, select Tools > Task Manager > Scheduling Live Network Collection. Schedule and run this task to collect the network topology data, including nodes, links, tunnels, and configured paths.

    Table 1 lists and describes the menu options.

    Menu Item

    Description

    BGP Neighbors at Node

    Polls the BGP MIB for the selected node, and reports status data in a table. For example, data includes the name of the node that is the BGP speaker, the interface used to establish the neighbor peer session, the IP address of the node that is the BGP neighbor node, the autonomous system numbers of nodes, and the status of the peer relationship.

    Tunnels at Node

    All tunnels from the node are displayed, along with the tunnel information. For example, data includes the name of the tunnel, the names and IP addresses of nodes at each end of the tunnel, the tunnel role, the operational status, and the tunnel up time.

    OSPF Neighbors at Node

    Displays the OSPF neighbors at the selected node and polls the OSPF MIB. For example, data includes the OSPF router ID of the node, the interface used to establish the OSPF neighbor adjacency, the name of the node that is the OSPF neighbor, the OSPF priority used, and the state of OSPF neighbor adjacency.

    ISIS Adjacencies at Node

    Displays the IS-IS adjacencies for the selected node. For example, data includes the IS-IS system ID of the node, the interface used to establish the IS-IS neighbor adjacency, the name of the node that is the IS-IS neighbor, the interface on the neighbor node used to establish the IS-IS neighbor adjacency, the state of the IS-IS neighbor adjacency, and the adjacency type.

    Displaying Protocol Status for BGP Neighbors at Node

    To display the protocol status for BGP neighbors at node:

    1. Right-click the device on the network map.
    2. Select Protocol Status > BGP Neighbors at Node.

      The BGP neighbors status for the selected node is displayed.

    Displaying Protocol Status for Tunnels at Node

    To display the protocol status for tunnels at node:

    1. Right-click the device on the network map.
    2. Select Protocol Status > Tunnels at Node.

      The tunnel status for the selected node is displayed.
